Mac Standalone Bug

Justin Sloan-2
Is anyone else seeing a bug in the Mac standalone maker that cuts off approximately the bottom 15 to 20 pixels of your stack when you make a standalone?_______________________________________________

Did you create a menu for your stack?

Jeff,

I do have a menu. Is that the problem?  How do I counter it?

It's an ancient issue. If you have a menu, make sure the destroystack
property of the stack is false. That fixes it. Then rebuild the standalone.

I don't know what platform your standalone is made for; but I have
had a problem in the past with standalones for Mac where the stack
size is set to the same screen resolution: the dock seems to interfere
and cut off quite a lot of the bottom of the stack. When the dock is set
to autohide the problem disappears.

I have had a similar problem with Cairo Dock and Avant Navigator
in Linux.

Oddly enough; multiple panels in GNOME are successfulyy masked
by RunRev standalone and don't chew off bits of the standalone's
real estate.

That doesn't fix it in 4.0.

Odd, it's what I usually use. You could try setting the destroywindow to
false too. I don't think you need to, but it's all I can think of. You
saved the stack after resetting the destroystack, before building,
right? Is the checkbox for destroystack NOT checked in the standalone
settings? If that's checked, the SB will reset the property behind your
back.

The horrible, ugly workaround is to hide the stack on preOpenStack, set
the height via script, and then show the stack.

Hi Bill,

Set the destroyStack to false, toggle the destroyWindow property (just  
try both possibilities), save and close your stack. Re-open your stack  
and build your standalone immediately. This worked for me.

Another solution might be to set the editMenus to true while hiding  
the menubar group.

Re: Mac Standalone Bug

True, in 4.0 I disabled destroyStack but it still happens.  The work
around was to write a resizing routine on preOpenStack for all objects
to get the to fit correctly within the stack.  This slows down the
spped at which the stack opens on initial launch but is otherwise
unnoticed.

Here's one more way to deal with the problem. Keep destroystack set to
false as before, and destroywindow as well. Add this to a preOpenStack
handler:

if the platform = "macOS" and the environment is not "development"
then set the menubar of this stack to "myMenuGroup"

Build your standalone with the menubar property turned off; that is,
build it as though it were for Windows with the menu group showing. When
your standalone launches, it will set the menubar on a Mac and the stack
will resize as you'd expect.

I've used this and it has always worked.
